#EarlyVoting: Nerdy Brown Kid
Ten weeks ago we kicked off our Movement to the Ballot Box art series. Artists across the country inspired us with their calls to action, sharing stories that moved Black, Latinx, Indigenous, AAPI, and young people to civic action.
On Election Day we conclude our series with Angelica Frausto.
, a social scientist by day and artist by night. She is a queer Xicana born and raised in the south side of Chicago now residing in South Bend, she shares her inspiration for this piece: “One of the ways that I can care for my community is through voting. Voter suppression disproportionately affects BIPOC folx. And many in our community, like undocumented and incarcerated folx, can't vote. Voting won't dismantle systemic oppression, but it will help communities of color survive and continue to fight for our collective liberation.”
There is still time to vote. Join the millions of people who already voted and get your ballot in today. Why? Because #WeMakeTheFuture.
